The story of America and African Americans is a story of hope and inspiration and unwavering courage. But it is also the story of injustice; of a country divided by law, education, and wealth; of a people whose struggles and achievements helped define their country.

Kadir Nelson, one of this generation''s most accomplished, award-winning artists, has created an epic yet intimate introduction to the history of America and African Americans, from colonial days through the civil rights movement. Written in the voice of an "Everywoman," an unnamed narrator whose forebears came to this country on slave ships and who lived to cast her vote for the first African American president, "Heart and Soul" touches on some of the great transformative events and small victories of that history. This inspiring book demonstrates that in gaining their freedom and equal rights, African Americans helped our country achieve its promise of liberty and justice--the true heart and soul of our nation.

Traveling from colonial times to the 21st-century election of President Barak Obama, an older African American woman narrates the turbulent history of African Americans in the United States. Including outrages and injustice alongside triumphs and heroes, author Kadir Nelson provides a wonderful introduction to a complex topic. Inspired by stories from his family, Nelson's stunning, evocative artwork accompanies the text. Winner of the 2012 Coretta Scott King Author award.
